Remove radiator and fan and anything that will block you from getting to the water pump. Take pictures of each step that you disconnected all parts getting to the water pump and the removal of the water pump with a digtal camera and take the pump to the parts dealer so that you get an exact match. Next read the instructions that come with the pump. Clean all old gasket and glue off of the place where you will install the new water pump. Next take your last picture you take and reverse the order and reinstall the gasket/sealer and water pump and all other parts. Use a tork wrench on the bolts. Add water and anti-freeze to the radiator and start the car and look for leaks.

2005 dodge stratus ebgine light on new codes put in due to loosing power when i shut off car wont start could it be fuel pump or censor and how do i check which one if any

With the check engine light on, it means trouble codes have been stored in the computer. Either rent/buy/borrow a code reader or if you can take it down to the local parts store to have it read (usually free). The error codes help point to the issue(s).

Hope this helps.

I got a 2001 doge stratus and i need to replace the water pump and i never done it before i got the part i jus need a outline of what i got to move to get to the part and how to put it on...

The water pump is driven by the timing belt. You will have to remove the crankshaft pulley and the timing cover. Once the pump is installed you will have to re-install the timing belt. A NEW timing belt is recommended and I always change them. there are "timing" marks on the crankshaft gear and the camshaft gear that need to be aligned and must be "dead on" to prevent serious engine damage. If your not comfortable doing this work I would have a professional do it as you don't want to do it wrong and risk damaging the engine to the point that it needs to be replaced.

Replace water pump on 2004 Dodge Stratus 2.4L DOHC

First, I'd recommend you buy a manual, because the water pump is internally mounted, driven by the timing belt. You will also need a puller to remove the crankshaft pulley. You can usually rent/borrow this from the same place you bought the manual. The manual will also show you how to properly install the timing belt and compress the tensioner.
You will need to drain the cooling system, raise the car (safely), remove the right tire, right inner fender, right engine mount (aka front mount), accessory drive belts, timing belt cover, timing belt and tensioner (which needs to be recompressed correctly), and now you are at the water pump. Since the timing belt has to be removed, you should also replace it.

2001 dodge stratus. does it have a timing chain or a timing belt?

Timing belt, 2.4L is an interference engine.
I would suggest replacing the water pump when you change the belt.
